pavilion TG 01
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

I installed 2 hard drives from my old m9040 pavilion into my new TG01pavilion. the new tg01 boots from the ssd drive on the m2 connection. I installed another boot drive at SATA 0, and a non boot drive on SATA 1. I have tried all the bios settings to boot into my old win10 M9040 pavilion drive on SATA 0 with no luck. The hard drives are SATA 3.5 inch drives in perfect working condition. The computer recognizes the drives but I cant use the old win drive to boot. Thanks in advance

hi

the hdd disk coming from another computer, it is certainly not configured, in order to start with the new one
It is not certain that it works correctly, even if you manage to boot with it, the system coming from another computer.
possibly, try to remove the original SSD, and check the bios boot menu then

Configuring the boot order in the system BIOS

I was a little busy. Thankyou. I honestly was going to try that as I have tried bios countless times.  I think its the only way it will show up in bios. I  will post the result, [ disconnecting SSD ] , when I get chance to try it.

@4Pavilions 

In addition to what @Prométhée has told you about the inability to boot from an older PC drive, you can not LEGALLY do this -- because the Windows license on the old drive is tied to that PC, not to you.  Even if you do get the old drive to eventually boot, Windows will deactivate on it and you will not then be able to reactivate it because HP will not supply you another OEM license.

 

You can use the old drive for DATA, but you can not reuse the Windows install on it.
